Re: As a TNA fan...it hurts me to say this
I was really stating to like TNA until they jumped the shark by challenging WWE live on Monday nights when they clearly weren't ready to do so. They were going to have Hogan? WWE trotted out the Hit Man. And so on. TNA was a growing promotion that got bad advice and decided to make a play for the big dog's yard. And as a result, got squashed. Why ditch the 6 sided ring? It made TNA unique and gave it something WWE definitely did not have. TNA had the X Division and a lot of great young talent. So why start pimping a bunch of old has beens all of a sudden? I ended up not being able to watch TNA anymore, since every week all it did was visually remind me of WCW as it was dying a slow death.
I am starting to watch again somewhat, and it looks potentially promising in spots. They are starting to focus a little on the young talent again, which is what they shoud do. WWE retreads are not going to help them. Even a big name will only give a big pop for a little while. The product needs to be regrown, which is the only way they are going to be able to get into a position to legitimately compete with WWE again. That and hire better writers. Fire anybody in creative associated with WCW or Attitude Era WWE. TNA needs to put their own product out and be original again. They seem to be heading that direction again, but its going to be a long bumpy road, if they can pull it off.
